Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
D2 is now open source – a new, modern language that turns text to diagrams
34 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Nov 2022
I like it and the comparison site on https://text-to-diagram.com
I just wanted to drop a reference to Burnt Sushi's ERD tool . It only does one diagram type: Entity Relationship Diagram. It's wonderful. Human-first syntax, code comments, and some simple formatting settings like colors and font sizes that help make more complex diagram pleasing and informative.

Recommendations for a CLI-tool to generate DB diagrams?

Only tool I've come across is erd but have not personally used it. We use LucidChart for our ERDs at work. They have an API to export to PNG and to create documents within it. The documentation for the API is dense, but it is something I am hoping to take a hack day or two to try to understand and see if I can automate generating and updating our own ERDs.
What databases do you find the most productive to connect to Haskell?

Postgresql-simple is a great library, it makes a nice use of overloaded strings to do the job. Some other nice libraries to keep an eye on are opaleye (postgres specific, which is equally nice but could be a bit difficult to get why the types are so big) and a combination of persistent (not DB specific! can work on postgres, sqlite, but also noSQL DBs like mongo, it's still easy to learn but you lose some things, such as joins due to the power of being agnostic) + esqueleto for type safe joins (be sure to look up the experimental package, it's a more comfortable syntax that will soon become the default one).

Either it analyzes the given SQL to determine the in/out types of each SQL query, or it calls the database describe feature at compile-time.
